It changes the char_traits for wchar_t to use an int rather than an
unsigned int. The objective is to match the name mangling of the
darwin toolset.

It will be required for all intel-darwin toolsets until the Intel
10.2 compilers become available on MacOS. At some point, I was going
to add logic to the intel-darwin init rule to conditionally add this
macro definition for any intel-darwin toolset versions less than 10.2.

Yeah, I need to document it for sure. I was in a hurry to get it
committed last night before the tests ran.
